Thank you very much for the pics. The great Pan chrystall glass cupboard from the Oslo Museum is really shocking! I wish I had such a basis in a museum in my hometown to present my collection to the public. Thanks for the close ups. It clarfies a little bit more. Notwithstanding the nib imprint is Norwegian languaged, the nib`s origin seems to be Bock in Heidelberg/ Germany.
I have some original imprint stamps.
Is it possible to contact the Oslo Museum? I am really curious about the connection of the PAN/Pan corporations
Thank you and Kind Regards
Thank you for providing me with new - to me - information. The imprint on the nibs share the same symbol at least some
of them, and the clip on my number 6 is the same as the one on several of your German pens. The shapes differ, though,
and that makes me think that the Norwegian onees are made to order - with their own design. The ones on my picture are
typical of the Pans I have seen. There are a couple of other designs, one is a typical early Duofold Sr. knockoff, and the other
is the Pan Jr. that started this tread.
I'm afraid I may have mislead you with my reference to the Oslo Museum. As far as I am aware, it is the picture of the glass cupboard
that is, or was, exibited, not the cupboard itself. At least this is what I believe. I haven't visited this museum myself, so I could well be
mistaken. I live in the west of Norway, far from the capitol.
I've included the contact iinfo to the museum, in case you would like to approach them directly.
I have enjoyed this exchange of Pan information, Pans were amongst my first pens.
Best of luck with your documentation project.
